Dear People of #Israel,

It’s time to get off the trains.

Get out into the streets and start protesting this tyranny in huge numbers, like the rest of the world are.

It’s time to wake up.
These are protests against tyranny in #Turkey 🇹🇷

#Israel, it’s time to wake up.
Get off the trains.

The possible inclusion of the #Left party in a German government will certainly not “spook markets”. /thread
As per my thread below, the #Left has moderated its demands on economics, welfare policies and taxes. Still leftist, but not extreme. /2
But will that not lower Germany’s #growth? Maybe, medium to long term. Raise unemployment a bit? Maybe. (The #Left income tax plans create 300k jobs, acc to ifo institute). /3…

Concerned by "affiliations and track records" of some of the #Afghanistan caretaker government appointed officials, says @SecBlinken in #Germany.
Grateful for the efforts of groups trying to arrange evacuation of people from #Afghanistan but right now"Taliban not permitting the charter flights to depart," says @SecBlinken. "We continue every day, virtually every hour, to work on that."
"The bottom line is this: Those flights need to be able to depart," adds @SecBlinken. "We will continue to press the Taliban" to allow the departures.

1/210: Markus Kerber's Apollo 13

In March 2020, the German Ministry of the Interior @BMI_Bund issued a #strategypaper that weaponized fear in order to accomplish compliance with #COVID policies. The authors' emails were litigated under #FOIA request. My analysis. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: The @BMI_Bund emails have been released to the public as they were successfully sued by lawyer Niko Härting in a FOIA proceeding. They can be requested directly from @BMI_Bund/ @rki_de via @fragdenstaat. Download it here: Image
3/210: The emails originated March 19-25, 2020. They are so explosive because they map the inner discourse of the @BMI_Bund's now infamous #COVID-19 taskforce, which produced several crucial domestic policy documents. @OttoKolbl

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

Interesting: several #ISKP commanders were liquidated soon after the #Taliban broke open the prison in Kunar. Some of these commanders had travelled to #IS Centre in Iraq/Syria.
So the #Biden administration really is preparing to say #Americans left behind in #Afghanistan wanted to be left there or are at fault for being left there.

#Germany is now a vaccine mandated country:

1) Only vaccinated are allowed
2) Tested are accepted, but self-pay starting 10/11
3) Recovered only valid for 5 months, then 1 booster needed.

What world do we live in?

#MedicalApartheid #Covid #Covid19 #Corona #Coronavirus
Fun fact though, everyone still has to wear masks and boosters are likely to be rolled out soon...
And now first German state's are starting to only allow vaccinated and 5month-recovered:

It's a joke!

#Biden's decision to stick to the Aug 31 deadline is bold -- it raises 2 key risks:

1) We'll be leaving people behind, certainly 1,000s of #Afghans & quite likely, a few Americans in hard-to-reach spots.

2) Other G7/NATO states have been rebuffed again by #Biden -- more anger.
"#Biden's decision to pull out troops was backed by most Americans, 53%-38%. But almost two-thirds, 62%, disapproved of the way his administration has handled that withdrawal."

Overall approval rating now 41%.

New polling on #Afghanistan's impact:… Image
BREAKING -- The US military has begun re-withdrawing from #Afghanistan, per US officials.

Very worrying sign for the 10,000s of those left behind - mostly #Americans, but some U.S. & European nationals too.

The fascist forces can expect our resistance! The people's will and revolution will win!

#AfghanWomen in #Kabul say it clearly:
“Death to the #Taliban!”

The #TalibanTakeover may have stunned the world, but the people's uprising and revolution will change the world for good!
Comrades @starrcongress with solidarity message, drawing parallels between war against #ISIS and current #TalibanTakeover:

"Just as we've resisted here, the people and women of #Afghanistan can also resist and struggle for freedom"

We stand with #AfghanWomen!
Self-defense is key to survival!

Bring an end to the fascist jihadist forces in #Afghanistan, as the women in #Rojava showed, e.g., in the heroic struggle in #Kobane!

#ISIS #Taliban
